The Garden Cottage is an architect’s own elegantly styled hideaway in the middle of nowhere but only 4 miles from Taunton and the M5.

 

Built in 2002 and extended in 2008, the spacious accommodation has stunning views across a tranquil landscape and is set in 7 acres of garden, meadow, ponds and woodland. Sleeps 6 with a large double bedroom with en-suite, a family room with double and single beds, a shower room, lounge with sofa bed, vaulted ceiling, oak floor, open fireplace, piano as well as hi-fi, tv, books, games and magazines. The fully fitted kitchen opens off the lounge and is well equipped. There is also a small utility area with a washing machine and drying facilities are available.

 

There is access by arrangement to a heated indoor swimming pool in the owners’ converted barn close by and guests are welcome to explore the grounds which lead onto a public footpath. The grounds are teaming with wildlife from rabbits, badgers and deer to buzzards, heron and even an occasional kingfisher.

 

Location : Rural but only 5 minutes from M5 (J25) and only 10 minutes from Taunton. An ideal base to explore the coasts of South Devon, Dorset and Somerset as well as the Quantocks, the Blackdowns and the Mendips.
